Health watchdog NICE is developing five pieces of guidance relating to diabetes over the next two years.

Each guidance will focus on a different element of the care pathway, because of the breadth of advice that will be covered, it will not be possible for one centre to develop all five pieces of guidance.

Diabetes in children and young people (Type 1 and 2) This is an update of Type 1 diabetes (NICE clinical guideline 15)
Diabetes in pregnancy This is a partial update of Diabetes in pregnancy (NICE clinical guideline 63)
Type 1 diabetes in adults This is an update of Type 1 diabetes (NICE clinical guideline 15)
Type 2 diabetes in adults This is an update of Type 2 diabetes (NICE clinical guideline 66) and Type 2 diabetes: newer agents (NICE clinical guideline 87).
Diabetic foot problems This is an update of Management of type 2 diabetes: prevention and management of foot problems (NICE clinical guideline 10) and a partial update (covering the recommendations on foot care only) of Type 1 diabetes (NICE clinical guideline 15). It will incorporate the recommendations on inpatient management of diabetic foot problems in adults from Diabetic foot problems: inpatient management (NICE clinical guideline 119).

NICE has set up a steering committee to oversee the production of the guidelines. This group, which will include development group members, guideline development group chairs, staff from all three guidance-producing centres and senior NICE staff will identify and act on any gaps or overlaps across the different guidance topics in order to ensure that the final guidance produced is complementary and consistent.

    We have seen some interesting response from HCPs online regarding the new NICE guidelines for diabetes. Very negative response to date – http://hcpdols.com/online-study-reveals-diabetes-specialists-concern-over-nice-draft-guidance-on-drugs/
